Sweet...

Now we need a Kit who can sit in his, and we're set! 

What about the ROTS Kit?

I never opened mine . Reid does that one sit well enough to pilot?

I don't have any JS, so I can't test him. But the ROTS Kit has ball-jointed knees, and is SA, so I would assume so.

He might be SA but he cannot sit in the AOTC or the ROTS Jedi fighter.  His "skirt" does not allow him to properly sit.

Maybe the topless CW one might fit.  I'll find mine and try it later but a topless jedi in a fighter just does not cut it, unless it is a female jedi.  :o

Kit's skirt is what I was referring to.  Perfectly fine figure otherwise, and I'd buy it again with a softgoods skirt if Hasbro were inclined to do that.  A nicer paintjob wouldn't hurt it either, but yeah his skirt is stiff... 

Obi Pilot's is cut and made of a better plastic for flexibility.  Irony is that Hasbro doesn't always use flexible plastic for skirt pieces when they should (for poseability, not just sitting in a fighter even), while they use overly flexible plastic in weapons when they shouldn't (Amanaman's staff in need of viagara anyone?).

Nice! I'll pass on the Mace JSF and pick this one up instead.

Edit:  I replaced the photo with a good one as per our front page

I'm so sick of repaints I could puke.  The only repaint I'll be buying this year is the DV black starfighter.

I wonder why they've decided to go with the Aethersprite design with Kit Fisto.  Especially when you consider how big the Kit Fisto figures are and how cramped that particular cockpit design is.  I had trouble fitting the SAGA Obi-Wan pilot in that particular vehicle.  I wonder how difficult it's going to be to get Kit Fisto into this ship.

Damn that's ugly.  Did Kit have some problems with mildew?

I don't mind the paintjob myself...  I'd passed on Plo's but sort of wish I hadn't.  My only gripe with that sculpt is the lacking rear landing gear unfortunately, but the paintjobs have been fairly nice I think.  It looks to me mostly like they just switched up Plo's perhaps?  My eyes aren't that great though anymore.

It makes sense them using the older model Jedi Starfighter for the production of this though as there's a number of repaints of the ROTS mold in use already, so it's very possible they simply don't have the production capacity to use the newer mold.  Personally I'd have preferred the ROTS fighter though, as it is definitely more spacious for Kit and it's also just a better ship mold overall (more accurate in general).

They probably figured they have Mace Windu's Jedifighter and Anakin's Black Jedifighter repaints already.  So, they went with the Plo Koon design instead.  I would like to have this but it's not anywhere near the top of my list.
